not gonna happen. 99.99% of all things never live up to the hype. It also depends on which aspects of the hype you believe in...
Thats questionable, the K20D actually did live up to the hype. Many of us were not expecting it to really have 14.6 mp that worked, but the 21fps mode didn't.

I wonder who's more ridiculous here - those who post again and again with no new info or we who read and comment all those posts?
I would say the former.
This is yet another post which is just a big tease, with absolutely no new info at all.
"Hey look, I know something... and you don't"
"You know what, this new camera has..... oh, but I can't tell you"

Why bother?
But someone is enjoying all the attention it gets, I suppose.
And this is not just directed at the OP, as he is not the only one.

.i say it is still the photographer and not the equipment
When are people going to quit trotting out this old saw? Probably not anytime this century.
The world is moving ahead, and camera technology is moving as well.
The more advanced cameras made today open up photographic opportunities that weren't even though of when I started out, and with it has come changes in the style of photography.
Imagine how many photos Weegee would sell to Sports Illustrated today if he was still shooting with a Speed Graphic (and please be smart enough to recognize that there is some hyperbole in this last sentence)

Form does follow function, and as function advances, so does photographic form.

Unless you shoot with Pentax, which has rigidly stuck to relatively low performance platforms as compared to it's competition since the late 1960's.
Whther this is good, bad or indifferent, I'm not really interested. I certainly can understand the frustration that users might have as they see the competition taking off and Pentax still idling on the runway, wondering if anyone bolted the wings on.
The whole change systems if you aren't happy arguement doesn't cut it either. It's become the Pentax version of Godwin's law, and it isn't valid.
When we buy into a camera system, there is an understanding between the buyer and the company that the company will continue to offer technologies that are competitive. At the moment, the best that Pentax has is comparable to a fourth tier camera from their main competitors.
This is just unacceptable, and it's to be hoped that this new body leapfrogs ahead into a second tier position.
Equally absurd is people complaining about imaginary specifications. At the moment, all we know is that we hope that a new camera will be announced later this month. We know nothing concrete about it's specifications. All we know is that it is supposed to be more advanced than what is being sold by Pentax at the moment.
Well, I'd bloody well hope so. They've got the bar set so low on the other end of the market that a Limbo dancer would slip a disc trying to get under it.

Be hopeful that this camera will be a real performance improvement over the K20, but at least wait for a spec sheet to be released by Pentax before writing the thing off.
At least that way, you'll have a clue about what about it doesn't float your boat.

i find it quite useless to make another hype-thread for the K7 if no concrete information can actually be shared.

I hope it's the price. Better to save money an extra mounth than wait another 18 mounths for "the problem" to be solved in the next camera.
